    I think that NHMS is one of the best schools in Georgia. When it's your first time at this school everybody is so friendly and you could make friends real quickly. They have tons of cool activities to join and extra help if you ever need it. The teachers work hard and work at a good paste. If you had a option to go to this school I would recommend to choose it.

    I think North Hall Middle School is an amazing school! i had to move at the end of my 7th grade year so i didnt get to continue on with all my friends. The teachers and students make a fun environment and everyone trys hard! whenever i needed help with something my teacher wanted to help cause they wanted me to understand and get good grades. the sport programs are also very fun and everyone does their best! I miss this school so much and i will never forget it! One of the best schools ever!!

    I have a child who goes to north hall middle and it is fantastic!!! The scores are good and the teachers are excellent!!!! There aren't any gangs and I would know since my daughter tells me everything and it is also very clean compared to other schools around. My husband used to inspect the schools around to make sure they were clean and this school(and the high/elementary school) are most definitely the cleanest by far! It was a tough decision to pick which school our daughter would go to and this one is awesome! Amazing! It's just a great clean school. )

    As a parent of an eighth grader we have been very pleased with the educational and extra-cirricular opportunities at NHMS. Our son has had the opportunity to take 4 high school level honors classes which is ahead of local private schools. Supportive and interested administration and teachers.

    There are lots of clicks and the school staff favor the parents who shower the school with donations. This school is all about image and money. Every extra activity is expensive. And the school is always cramming some fund raiser in your face and the items they ask you to buy or sell are also expensive. Equality is missing in this school.

    My daughter just started her third year at NHMS and it's been a wonderful experience. Mr. Brown who took over as principal last year is absolutely the best. He knows all the kids and is their biggest cheerleader. The teachers have been great- my daughter made significant strides in science and math and her passion for writing has been encouraged. I love this school- it's the perfect fit for my child!

    My daughter did extremely well in all subjects at NHMS. Her Algebra teacher was very good and math became a favorite subject. Her 6th grade Science teacher was also excellent! My child flourished & thrived under these great teachers both of whom have terrific personalities! The Asst. principal Mrs. Jenkins was wonderful & helpful through all three years - excellent job!

    I think North Hall Middle is a better than average school. It's in my opinion better than Chestatee Middle in several ways. The only problem that I have with North Hall Middle is the principal. She is suspicious of anything any of the students do and she does not go along with the rules very well.
